Georgia candidates compete for women voters

In the homestretch leading up to Election Day candidates are making every weekend count.

This past weekend, candidates’ attention turned to convincing Georgia’s women voters.  

To talk more about that, WABE politics reporter Rahul Bali joined “All Things Considered” while reporting live from the State Senate.

He says the first event he covered was with former Republican Georgia U.S. Senator Kelley Loeffler. Since she lost her Senate runoff last year, she turned her attention to registering conservative voters through her organization Greater Georgia.

Bali says the topics Loeffler covered centered around pocketbook issues, inflation, and some mentions of education as well.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson also came to the Atlanta for a couple of events. That includes one for Senator Raphael Warnock that featured State Senator Jen Jordan, who is the Democratic nominee for Attorney General.

Stacy Abrams and other Democrats are hoping to leverage discontent with the overturning of Roe vs. Wade and women’s loss of the legal right to an abortion.
